Elias joined BMO Nesbitt Burns in 2009 and excelled in the acclaimed National Rookie Training Program.  He has grown his business from scratch, working with a select group of clients across the country including business owners and executives, incorporated professionals, condominium corporations and retirees.  He and his team focus on providing a full range of customized solutions and services to meet the unique needs of their clients through a convenient "one stop shop" philosophy.

Elias has built his business on a core set of beliefs:
  • All clients should have a financial plan
  • Risk is only a permanent loss of capital
  • Asset allocation should reflect the work that is done in a financial plan
  • Being a "yes" person is no help to you
In addition to his responsibilities to his clients, he takes pride in coaching new Investment Advisors in his branch and speaking to the BMO Nesbitt Burns National Rookie Training Program several times a year.

Outside of the office, Elias has a love of the stage.  He is a proud graduate of the Second City training centre and enjoys performing in amateur shows in his spare time.  He holds an honours degree in Economics from Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario.
